|I also made a few bibs and burp cloths|
This bag I did from a tutorial I found on Pinterest. It is reversible, and I actually up-cycled the outer layer from a pair of pants. The reverse side is small red gingham. It needed a little something so I embroidered a little flower based off a design I found in this book.
While some of the grandchildren were here they decided to put on a show. Angel Eyes asked me to stay in the kitchen while they got ready. Soon everything was set, and they called me into the room. I was informed that every audience member would get their back scratched during the performance.
They had a stage set up with props, and upon seating me the promised back scratch commenced. However, the actress of this one child show, staring Sweet Cheeks, developed a serious case of stage fright.
The play was cancelled, and I started back to the kitchen to finish my work. As I made my way to the doorway the crew began to invite me, gently at first and then more insistently, to fill in and put on a show for them. I agreed and did an impromptu monolog that brought a great deal of laughter.
When they saw that I was willing to make a complete fool of myself they began to open up and lose their stage fright. They all wanted to participate and asked if I would pull out the dress-up box.
Soon they each had a role and I was delightfully entertained for the rest of the evening.
|These two put on a fashion show.|
|This little nut put on a combination opera/comedy routine. It was hilarious!|
|And who knew that Superman played the violin?|
|"What violin, Mimi? That was a fiddle!"|
